PE - Children will require their P.E. kits every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They should leave it in school until the half term holiday. This will ensure that they don’t regularly forget their P.E. kit. The children will need either pumps or trainers as the children will participate in outdoor and indoor activities throughout the term. If your child doesn’t have the correct footwear, they may not be able to participate in certain activities, which would have a negative impact on their physical development.
Spellings – Children will be given a spelling list every Monday, please ensure your child practices these as they will be tested on these spellings on the following Tuesday. To support them further, encourage your child to form sentences with the words given as well as research the meaning of any they are unsure of.
Learning log – Children will be given learning log challenges each half term which is linked to the work they have been covering throughout the topic. This needs to be handed in on specific dates, please take this opportunity to work with your child and tackle the challenges with a creative, imaginative mind that celebrates you child's ideas.
Books – Reading books will be changed every Monday. Please ensure that books and signed reading diaries are in school each Monday. Library books will be changed every two weeks. It is important that your child reads every evening. This could be done independently or with the help of an adult or older sibling.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to us at the end of the school day.
Mrs Thomas and Mrs Khan
